It’s been a bit since I’ve shared new music, but as soon as I found out about this I had to! First, not only did Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next album just dropped tonight (and about to download that!), but she also released a new music video for her third single from the album, “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored.”
Check it out below and add it to your travel playlist (and the banger lineup):
Haven’t done a new song select in a while, but as soon as I heard Gwen Stefani’s new solo single, “Baby Don’t Lie”, had to share it! Check it out below: Read the rest of this entry
Leave it Beyonce to be a musical ninja again. Yonce has released a new version of “Flawless” with Nicki Minaj, who shared the news about their duet on Instagram. Listen below. Read the rest of this entry
Music is an essential part of travel and daily life, but there are just some songs that put you in the mood to go out and get a plane ticket or hit the road. Whether it’s because of the lyrics or the music video, feel the wanderlust from these 15 different songs:
British synth-pop dou La Roux is back with a new single that premiered today, and just like front-woman Elly Jackson’s hair, the song is brilliant!
Quite different from “Bulletproof”, “Let Me Down Gently” is a smooth, ballad-like track with a synth-pop audio. The beat of course then picks up, with Jackson’s lyrics still staying soft for a harmonious, balanced comeback track that’ll be great for to listen while cruising—whatever your method of transpo is. “Let Me Down Gently” is the lead single for La Roux’s return album, Trouble in Paradise, which is due in July.

I just heard/watched “Sheezus”, and I wait can’t for Lily Allen’s comeback album next month, which is named after the song. Sure “Hard Out Here” is a catchy tune, but with Allen poking fun at Kanye’s Yeezus alter ego and then name dropping Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Lorde, she has created a number that you have to listen to: Read the rest of this entry
I kind of wish Lana Del Rey pulled a Beyonce with this track. After debuting “West Coast” (which was announced as the lead single of Ultraviolence earlier this month when “Meet Me in the Pale Moonlight” leaked) while at Coachella this weekend, Lana’s released the official audio for the new track that we’re all going to have on repeat this spring and summer. The song is in typical Lana fashion, with sultry vocals and a moody track, but also has a little soft rock edge. Listen below: Read the rest of this entry
As we count down the days to the release of Ultraviolence, Lana Del Rey’s second album due on May 1, we got a special treat today, a new leaked single. Though it is still uncertain if this track will appear on the new album, no doubt that “Meet Me In The Pale Moonlight” is winning over fans with its a groovy disco-influenced tunes and classic (meaning Lizzy Grant – Lana’s previous persona) lyrics that needs to be on this upcoming album or released on its own for us to properly download.

If you find yourself heading to Magic City this weekend for the Ultra Music Festival, I’ve put together a cool guy’s guide for AskMen.com to give you a rundown of who to check out, where to eat, drink and shop in Miami, who to take style inspiration from, and what to wear:
Styling for any music festival, you can never go wrong with skinny jeans, but if the destination is very warm (like Miami), shorts are also a great option—just make sure to go for flat front over cargo styles (those are so over). For tops, go for graphic tees and tanks with funky designs, and make sure to skip out on the usual band, kitsch or ironic T-shirts. For accessories and footwear, old-school chic and plastic sunglasses are great to go from music festival to sunbathing, a colorful or print baseball cap is useful all spring and summer long, and sneakers and slip-ons are good go-tos as you’ll be standing and bouncing around for hours.

Lady Gaga’s released an 11-minute ARTPOP film for her song “G.U.Y”, which along with performing the provocative single also features the song “Venus”. The video follows Gaga after being reborn (or as she enters the next stage in life) and makes her way to a white mansion that’s filled with familiar faces from the Bravo family (like Andy Cohen as Zeus) and turns into a big Gaga-esque party. The entire video is flawless, with the dance numbers reminding me of her “Paparazzi” days, but something that’s also worth mentioning is the location of where the video was shot, the Hearst Castle on the Pacific coast of San Luis Obispo County, California in its own town of San Simeon.
The beautiful central Californian castle, a National and California Historical Landmark mansion designed in the Mediterranean Revival style, can actually be visited and able to host events. It dates back to 1919 and can look like a castle in the sky as it is perched on a hill with an altitude of 1,600 feet.
Here’s a look inside the castle and its grounds beyond the “G.U.Y” video:
